Who is Grace Students for?
Grace Students is our ministry to students in 6th - 12th grade.
When do we meet?
Youth Group meets regularly on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00pm.
*Due to Covid-19 we do ask students and youth leaders to wear masks.
At youth group we want every student to have a place to belong, where they can have fun and be a teenager. We also want every student to feel safe, where they can ask the hard questions and discuss what’s really going on in their lives.
Our desire is to help students live Jesus-centered lives, by equipping them with Biblical truth, cultivating deep relationships with them, and empowering them to live on mission for Jesus in their world.
We also want to come alongside parents and guardians to be a support for them in the often-challenging season of raising teenagers.
Where do we meet?
Grace Family Church
415 S Kinzer Ave. New Holland PA, 17557
What is Youth Group like?
Games, snacks, small groups, and a bible lesson all rolled into one awesome night!
Parental Consent Form:
Keeping teens safe is a huge desire we have, and one of the ways we do that is to make sure we keep up to date on the important information we might need for a teen in the event of an emergency. This is especially important because we regularly go on day events or retreats, so annually we ask parents and guardians to fill out a short parental consent form.
Events & Experiences!
UNITE YOUTH RETREAT
Every spring, Grace Students attends UNITE Youth Retreat! This weekend experience typically takes place within our local area, and it is a great time to "unite" with other youth groups as we take steps in our walk of faith. Unite is a powerful experience, full of tons of fun, that no one is going to want to miss! This retreat is for any of our Grace Students in 6th to 12th grade. Check out the recap video of UNITE 2021!
MOMENTUM YOUTH CONFERENCE & MOMENTUM ON THE ROAD
Most summers the High Schoolers of Grace Students (9th-12th grade) attend Momentum Youth Conference. This is an amazing weeklong conference where students are challenged and encouraged in their faith. It is also a powerful time to build deep relationships with other students and leaders. This year they are not having the regular Momentum Youth Conference experience, instead they are having a Momentum on the Road opportunity!
